The debut album by London Grammar, If You Wait, has, no pun intended, been well worth the wait. The band spent 18 months writing and recording this album, and that patience really shows. It feels to me like there's a lot of bands that rush to get albums out on a wave of hype, then they're rather disappointing, but this is not the case here.
London Grammar's sound could be summed up as a cross between the XX and Florence Welch. They have the chilled minimalistic vibe of the XX, but then Hannah Reid's voice just takes it to a new level. She can do the softer pieces very well, almost whispering at times, but then when it's required, she soars up. She has a tone in her voice that just fits perfectly with the accompaniment.
The album opens with a gentle synth riff which the guitar gentle picks away over the top of. Reid then begins the album with a very gentle opening, 'Hey now, letters burning by my bed for you'. The track continues like this until a gentle crescendo builds and the sound swells up before gently fading away. 'Hey Now' is there best known track to date, and makes a great opening to the album.
'Stay Awake', the second track starts with a ethereal sound slowly flitting around before a piano and guitar play almost in unison. A driving drum beat is then added and Reid's distinctive vocals are then thrown in.
The beauty of this album is how little seems to be going on at any one point. Everything feels like it's been very carefully considered and honed. Nothing feels like it's redundant. But all of this just draws more attention to Reid's voice and allows it to truly take centre stage as it deserves.
'Wating My Young Years', is a gentle almost soulful ballad. Reid wrote the lyrics about an ex-boyfriend, and it shows with lyrics like 'I'm wasting my young years'.

London Grammar are clearly talented but they feel like a band that has come on the scene with just a tad too little material. The album feel like it was forced for commercial reasons rather than held back until there were better and more diverse selections to make in terms of tracks. Enjoyable - but I would like to see them take their time with the next album and surprise us with a more diverse mix of sounds.

I first heard London Grammar on the radio and her voice blew me way. I started telling my friends about them. It has an incredible resonance, a bit of Florence,a bit of Goldfrapp and a bit of originality. A beautiful beautiful album,every track is incredible, I hope they go on to make many more.

I love it and can't stop playing it! I couldn't leave home without putting Stay Awake with Me, Nightcall, Sights and If You Wait onto my phone and playing it really loudly and singing along in my car. I discovered London Grammar whilst being poorly and not being able to get out of bed for a day. I watched hours of footage from the Glastonbury festival on the BBC iplayer and was flicking the line up, learning about lots of new bands but couldn't tear myself away from London Grammar's hour set at Glastonbury.

This isn't my usual "sort of thing", but having stumbled across them doing Strong on YouTube and also bought the two XX albums, I thought I'd give this a try.

And wow, I absolutely love it!

Particular favourites are: Wasting My Young Years, Strong, Metal & Dust and Flickers.

It's worth buying the Deluxe version, cos Darling Are You Gonna Leave Me and High Life are excellent too

London Grammar have one of the most refreshing and exciting sounds of 2013. The music speaks for itself - it is raw and spare, and so much more evocative and emotionally charged as a result. Hannah's voice is superbly arresting. This is a trio to watch, and a must have album of the year.

Best of luck to them at the BRIT Awards - it's a crowded scene this year, but they hands down deserve it.

What can I say, until yesterday I had never heard of this band but am so glad I did..
There is so much rubbish out there that to hear some real talent is a breathe of fresh air.

Bought this for my girlfriend as a Christmas present but really fallen in love with it myself!

The first track Hey Now is my favourite for sure.

Not an upbeat album but very melodic and enchanting.
